Films acquired the film from Svensk Filmindustri, and its sister company Regent Releasing will distribute the film in select U.S. cities during the summer of 2009.

Directed and co-written by Ella Lemhagen, "Patrik, Age 1.5" made its US premiere at AFI Fest on November 3rd ArcLight Hollywood. "Patrik, Age 1.5" had it world premiered as an official selection at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival. The film is based on an original play, "Patrik, Age 1.5" written by Michael Druker.

"'Patrick, Age 1.5' was delightful discovery for Regent as we continue our commitment to showcase the best in gay cinema," said Mark Reinhart, West Coast General Manager and Executive Vice President Distribution and Acquisitions. "Ella does an amazing job portraying the sentiments and trials of these two loving men trying to build a new home and family together."

"Patrik, Age 1.5" centers on a married gay couple who move into a picture-perfect suburb outside of Stockholm, Sweden with hopes to adopt a baby boy. When they receive notice that they are to expect Patrik, age 1.5, they are elated. However, a little mistake made at the adoption agency turns their world upside down. A decimal point had been misplaced in the agency's records and a 15-year-old homophobe shows up at their front door. Even worse, they discover that he may have a criminal past.

"We are so thrilled that here! Films and Regent Releasing will be handling our film in the U.S.," said Ann-Kristin Westerberg, Senior Vice President, International, for AB Svensk Filmindustri. "We are confident they understand this market and are pleased they love the movie."
